Thursday 28 December 2017

Welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop and the last for 2017, we look forward to sharing lots more inspiration in 2018. Please join me in welcoming our new team members - Dena Albee, Dena Rekow, Genevieve Ko and Susanne Netz to our Blog Hops.

You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The theme this month is Fun Folds. Please hop around the list at the bottom to check out all the inspirational projects created by the team.

As this card is for an 11 year old girl I've chosen the new Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue - it's so cute! The Happy Birthday stamp is from Perennial Birthday, also from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue and only 6 days till you can order from it! The type of fun fold card I've made is called a Twisted Pop-Up card.

And this is where the magic happens - as you open the card up it twists and out pop these four panels. I used a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers - there's a step by step written version with photographs and also a video which I recommend watching.

My daughter wrote the verse inside using the titles of Ed Sheeran's songs.
A Birthday Mini Binder Clip works perfectly to attach the tickets to the card!
And a little eclipsing for the 11!
I'm sure Kate will love the card and especially the gift inside.
Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to visit the other design team members for more ideas and inspiration.
